washington to monitor the storm's progress while former president, bill clinton, does the event solo. early voting, by the way, opened on saturday in florida and with some waiting hours to cast ballots, but are the lines long enough for the democrats to overcome the republicans' absentee voter advantage in the state? think snowbirds. >> early voting started this weekend. i understand you guys blew it out when it came to early voting. whoever is able to get their voters out, you know, they're the ones who are going to win florida. we win florida, we win this election. >> i need you to vote early. i need you to get out and vote. we need to make sure that we win this one. it counts. >> florida congresswoman debbie wassermann schultz chairs the democratic national committee. she is sitting somewhere that is unfamiliar to me because you have sunlight behind you and blue skies. that is not something we have here on the east coast. >> right. >> let me just start with the president's decision. basically, does he regret even flying down to orlando last night? is that the takeaway we should ha

right now. >> what kind of impact does it have not having the principal there? obviously, bill clinton is a draw, but i assume these events that you're doing in florida were all designed to get as many people there to go early vote. is that correct? and what kind of impact does it have not having the candidate? >> well, having president clinton at this event is going to ensure that this event is successful while president obama is able to be in washington and make sure he can coordinate the response and the preparation for folks who are in the path of the storm. and obviously, you know, i can tell you, chuck, being from a hurricane-prone state, we know that these storms have to be taken seriously. i would urge everybody to take the storm seriously, listen to evacuation orders if they're given and make sure that you have a three-day supply, which is what we tell everybody, 72-hour supply of what you're going to need in the aftermath of the storm, water and other provisions. but in terms of the actual event, whether president obama does or doesn't attend one event to make sure he's doing hi

. >> speaking of the path -- you're looking at live pictures. bill clinton in lakewood, florida. the first of i believe he has five events in four cities. he's sort of the fifth guy in this game of campaigning all around the country today. take a listen a little bit. then we'll go to break. >> senator richard luger. their most important authority on foreign affairs. and he attacked libya for cooperating with president obama on the nation's security. he said, you know, his happiest day was when he could impose his opinion on someone else and he wanted to bring more partisanship to washington. and essentially what president obama is saying, look at me. i'm always going to work with the republicans. i worked with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with them on a budget. i tried to work with them on health care. and what they say is, we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now that's the message. you have to decide whether you think that's a good message. i mean, i was watching this -- this storm has been tough on me being out on the road. i was in o

hudson and lacrosse, wisconsin. joe biden and bill clinton are also on the stump for president obama. let's bring in our panel, former rnc chairman michael steele, former democratic senator blanche lincoln, and washington bureau chief susan page. susan, let me start with you. disaster politics. it's a fact of life. it's what can re-elect or unelect governors, but now it's potentially impacting the presidential race. any idea how this is going to impact? >> if you want to look at an opportunity for president, look at "morning joe," governor christie of new jersey, saying the president and fema are doing an outstanding job. i mean, that's the upside, potential political upside for a president. obama is not out there on the campaign trail like any candidate. he's in the situation room, being briefed overnight. >> right. this is an opportunity for him to be the president, to be the commander in chief, to make that case. if there's a problem with fema's response, if there's a glitch that develops, but i think a big potential here for president obama in this very, very close race. >> senat
